Ive lived in Danville since I was a adopted. It's a small town, we have a few great restaurants, some fast food places and a huge hospital. Everyone pretty much knows everyone! Danville has started to become more diverse over the years, hopefully it continues as our hospital expands and brings in more people!

For a small town, Danville has everything one would need. Known for the Geisinger Medical Center, it's comforting to know that one of the best hospitals in the country is a 5 minute drive away. It's local library is also in pristine condition for it's age, and is accommodating to whatever you require. The only criticism I can give is the traffic during certain times of the day are unheard of for a small town, and also unavoidable.
Danville is a quaint, small town in Pennsylvania. It has Geisinger Medical Center, which is a blessing for the town. Having a renown hospital creates jobs for the region. The town is quiet, low on crime. The downtown is quiet, filled with restaurants and local shops. The town has two private schools in it, and a fantastic public school district. They are 17th in the state.
